    I don't know how people are seeing the photos in post #25. I have tried 8 different browsers on 4 different operating systems and none display the photos. I have this problem with all photos posted on Google. What's the trick to viewing them?

    No pictures for me, although now little x-boxes show up where they should be.

    Not yet for me.

    Might be my computer, though: I can't see embedded YouTube links ever, either.

    I can't see the post #25 photos either. I am on Chrome, and can see other people's photos from Google, just not yours. Must be some reason.

    Yep! I can see them now.

    Worth the wait. That's clever.

    Very slick, Kent. On my list for next winter's projects. As you said, probably wont go out every time, but a real plus when you are in leisure mode on a hot summer day.

    Not sure what you did to get your photos to display, but I sympathize with you. Every time I go to post, I find that the interface (Flickr in my case) has changed and I have to go searching for the URL. A real pain.

    Ain't it funny how time slips away. Not funny, actually, but more than a little scary.

    Back to my January 2017 project of copying Rick's bimini. I actually laminated the bows back in early 2017, then figured out the basic setup in the spring.

    At that point it was time to go sailing. Project on hold until last week. We got the top made and tested the mounting.

    Next step is attaching the top to the bows and adding the tie-downs.

    You can also use them to mount rear-....or is it front-view mirrors on pulling boats. Works great and has certainly saved my a dunking or worse when rowing the snag-filled stretches of the Upper Napa and parts of the Sacramento rivers.

    Very cool Jim! I can't believe you actually made this, it looks great. I see you are using the same binder clips as I did to test the cover fit, too funny.

    For permanent attachment of the cover, I would recommend either screws with load spreading washers (mine has #6 flat head SS and nylon finishing washers), or snaps. Start installing at the center on each bow, work outward to keep even tension on the fabric.

    They are sockets to hold various stuff possibly including oarlocks.
